Kristen Stewart and her 'Snow White and The Huntsman' director Rupert Sanders have admitted to cheating on their significant others- Stewart on boyfriend and Twilight costar Robert Pattinson and Sanders on his wife of seven years, Liberty Ross. So how did it all go down?
Stewart, star of three Twilight films to date and about one year into dating Pattinson, signed on to star as the heroine in Snow White and the Huntsman in March 2011, to be directed by Sanders and costarring Charlize Theron.
In October, Stewart finally acknowledged that she was indeed in a relationship, although without mentioning who with. This comment to GQ magazine near-confirms it is Pattinson: "I'm looking forward to exploring England while in the country shooting Snow White because my boyfriend is English."
At the LA premiere of Snow White in June, Sanders, his wife at his side, tells E! News that not only does Stewart have a "great spirit," she's also "feisty and kind of wild."
Come July 17 a paparazzo with killer instincts snaps photos of Stewart and Sanders locked in a passionate embrace. A bidding war for the damning images ensues, and Us Weekly is the apparent winner.
July 21 BlackBook posts an interview with Pattinson, in which he calls rumors that he and Stewart are engaged not true. "At least, not yet," he adds. "But it is true that Kristen has always done something to me that others haven't."
The next day Stewart, Pattinson and Taylor Lautner take the stage at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards to accept the 41st overall award for The Twilight Saga. It doesn't appear that the couple are sitting in the audience together.
July 24 Ross tweets, "Wow," before closing her Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Stewart apologizes first the very next day, telling People magazine in a statement: "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
Sanders is a close second, saying, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together."
The gossip-sphere has gone nuts with fans predicating on what will happen next- some say there are even more salacious images to emerge, some have faith that Robsten will reunite, while others suppose that this was more of a long-term love affair than a brief fling.
What do you think? Can Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders redeem themselves?
